Small Animal or Mixed Veterinarian - Part Time

We are looking for a small animal vet, or a mixed vet with a small animal bias, to join our 7 vet mixed practice located in Methven in the heart of Mid Canterbury along the foothills of the Southern Alps.

The role is part time, 2-3 days a week and although we are looking for someone to help cover up to 12 months maternity leave, this may well end up a permanent position for the right candidate.

You will need to be a well rounded, enthusiastic, caring and dedicated vet who is keen to be part of a friendly, close knit team of professionals. You will ideally have a minimum of 2 to 3 years experience and be competent with all routine small animal work.

We offer

  • A fun, relaxed and rewarding work environment
  • A strong team focus
  • The support of an experienced team
  • An established, thriving mixed practice with a busy small animal clinic with plenty of variety
  • No evening or weekend clinics
  • No afterhours
  • A generous salary package depending on experience
  • A purpose built facility with digital x-ray, in house blood analysis

Methven is a friendly town, just over an hour from Christchurch. There’s lots to do here with all kinds of sports and activities available on our doorstep from tennis, squash, netball or rugby to skiing, tramping and the great outdoors. Methven is the resort town for the Mt Hutt ski field and we’ve plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from. There’s also the new Opuke Hot Pools to relax in after a hard day at work.
